We started with the gorgeous misty & red sun views of Sunrise Hills.
Then the 1 hr 4WD journey to the base of waterfalls was absolute fun, with scenic views & cool, fresh air.
The hike itself was a little challenging for this unfit 40-something mother, but my teens breezed through it!
Not recommended for kids under 9 or anyone with woobly knees or loose ankles.
The waterfalls was beyond my expectations!
So high & majestic!
The water was refreshing, you don't feel tired at all after that 1 hr hike.
And when the rainbow 🌈 appeared, that was it!
A core memory definitely!

Hiking from the base to this attraction require some muscles but not really difficult. The last part is a stretch where you need to do that slower senior. Not recommended for young children. Well, I do not get to see the rainbow but the waterfall still lovely.

Its a must try experience. the 1 hour ride at the back of a pick up truck is a good adventures experience. The climb was good. The hike is about 45min - 1 hrs, But the waterfall hiking is bit dangerous due to slippery stones. Make sure to wear a good hiking shoes. Be prepared to get wet. Those dont have a proper shoe, can rent a rubber shoe at the base for rm3.

But be prepared, the rainbow will not always be there. Its depending to the weather. We didn't get the change to see it.

The highlight of my visit to Sg Lembing!
We had a hiccup with our hotel (OYO Jasa Resort) as they were supposed to book the tour and pick us up at the hotel at 5.30am.

We drove to town around 5.50am, and stopped at the food court/market in town and there were loads of 4x4 trucks and people having breakfast. We just approached a random driver and joined the tour with another group for RM60 per person.

We left at 6.45am from Sg Lembing town. Such an exciting off road bumpy ride with the 4x4. It is a safe ride so don't worry about that.

Around 20 mins into the forest, we reached the sunrise point, and 45 mins later we reached the start of the trek.

DO rent the rubber shoes from the Orang Asli (RM3) for 2 reasons
1. Amazing grip on the wet rocks
2. Keeps your running shoes clean and dry(slightly muddy and wet trek)

After a somewhat easy hike(1 hour) we reached the waterfall. (You wont get wet during the trek, so dont need to bring a change of clothes unless you want to swim in the waterfall. We even managed to keep our socks dry) There was no rainbow on the day we visited as it wasnt sunny but the waterfall was majestic indeed. Our guide was kind enough to bring hot maggi cup and also hot milo there and we had such an amazing time! (Do bring your own snacks to relax at the waterfall)

We reached Sg Lembing town at 12pm. Great tour for Rm60-70. Worth it!

Unfortunately the place is no longer accessible for people with their own vehicle like in the past so we had to give it a miss.
There are many other nice off road places in the area so that is not really a problem
Just scared for the people that takes the local HiLux rides coz that's an accident waiting to happen

It is not an easy climb after rain. One must be careful of slippery rocks and trails. There is a bridge now to cross the river and start hiking. It is an enchanting moment if you get to see the rainbow. It was for me because it was a foggy morning and the sun only appear at 10.15AM!

My family & I visited this place on 1st Dec. We are a family of 5. Eldest is 10 & youngest is 5. All of us had a great time!

The journey started in the morning at 6am when we got picked up from the resort. Brought us out for breakfast (own cost). After breakfast, we were brought to the top of a hill to view sunrise. But that day was cloudy, no sunrise but still an awesome sight to behold. After taking photographs there, the adventure ride begins!

After about 45 mins of a rumbling ride, we reached the stop. This is the first & last proper toilet you will find during your journey to the rainbow waterfall. So do what is necessary!

The hike is abt 1km in. The 900m is normal trek. The last 100m, is like a mini obstacle course. Nature-made. So ensure your shoes are non-slip. If you want to rent non-slip shoes, you can get them from the Orang Asli who also looks after the toilet.

We soon caught sight of the majestic waterfall. It was just magical 🌈!

On that day, we saw the rainbow a number of times & the waterfall was very splashy too.

At the foot of the waterfall, the guides set up their makeshift shelter to cook hot water for our instant cup noodle & hot Milo.

My husband & my boys had a dipped in the waterfall but my daughter and I decided to stay out coz it was just too cold for us. We stayed up here for abt an hour.

We reached back our resort abt 12:30pm that day.

In all, this is a recommendable hike for a young family.

The waterfall and rainbow are so beautiful. We were so near to the rainbow but there is a price to pay. To be able to see it, you have to climb about more then 1km. The climbing can be quite dangerous as the rock are shaky when you step on it and the water is quite strong when you wag through it as you climb. Overall it is worth it.

Probably had huge expectations considering the journey to the waterfalls was quite challenging, ie 40 minutes of driving through the forest in a 4WD then hiking up to the waterfall for about 1.2km. The hike was not too hard but still challenging for those with low stamina or difficulty in climbing. There was no sun on that day and since it was a public holiday weekend, at least 400 people hiked up. Too crowded and disappointed.
